WATCH: Baby bald eagle expected to hatch this week

- The moment bald eagle fans have been waiting for is expected to happen this week.

Two bald eagles have been nesting high up in a Tulip Poplar tree amongst the Azalea Collection at the U.S. National Arboretum since 2014.

"Mr. President" and "The First Lady," the stars of the DC Eagle Cam, laid their first egg on February 10. The second egg was laid on Valentine's Day.

If all goes as planned, one of the eaglets is expected to hatch this week. Bald Eagle eggs typically hatch about 35 days after being laid.

After raising one eaglet successfully in 2015, the 501(c)3 American Eagle Foundation partnered with the National Arboretum to install and stream two high definition video cameras from the top of the nest tree.

The cameras are powered completely by a large solar array designed and donated by Alfred State College, SUNY College of Technology, which was also partially funded by the District Department of Energy and Environment.

Think you can guess the exact date and time the eggs will hatch? Use the hashtag #dceaglecam on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram with their prediction.
